Re: edubuntu ltsp 14.04 as host and windows 8.1 vm
Okay so if you choose NAT, then what that does is turn your host into the guest's router. That would make the host = 10.0.3.2 as far as the guest knows. The guest can't find the host on the 192.168 subnet because the guest isn't on that subnet and can't have any way to know it exists.
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway. 10.0.3.2
if you choose to bridge the guest, then both the guest and host will use your router as their gateway. That means they would both be on the 192.168 subnet. And if they ping each other's 192.168.0.X address, they would be able to find each other. If they can't then you must have ICMP blocked on the router, host, and/or guest.
